The first accelerated processing units (APUs) - the term AMD uses to describe its CPU-GPU chips - will be code-named Llano and Ontario. The former - Lllano - will feature four cores, 4MB of cache, graphics processing engine and DDR3 memory controller; the latter - Ontario - will sport two cores, 1MB of cache and DDR3 memory controller. The Llano will be targeted at mainstream desktop market segment, whereas the latter will be aimed at ultra-portable notebooks.
